Microsoft Publisher or Microsoft Word Tutorial to Make a Digital
Quilt Scrapbook Page
Prepared by TKHarrison, QuiltScrapbook.com

1) Open MSPublisher (aka MSPub) and start with a blank sheet of paper.

2) A word of caution -- if you are not using high DPI (dots per inch) elements, your printed Quilt Scrapbook page
will probably look “grainy.” Be sure you have at *least* 200 dpi images, if not 300 dpi.

3) You should already have the digital elements that you want to use in your Quilt Scrapbook page downloaded onto
your computer or a disk and. If the file is a .zip folder, you need to UNZIP it. If you don’t, please take the time
now to do so.

4) You should also have your photograph(s) of the quilt(s) you want to use in your Quilt Scrapbook page taken and
saved to your computer or a disk. If you don’t, please do so now.
5) Begin your Quilt Scrapbook page by opening the background paper image you want to use. You will find this
INSERT in your file menu or as an icon on the screen (the placement of this icon may be in a different place on
your screen):

6) When you go to INSERT, a box will pop up to show you the files on your computer. Locate the background
paper image that you want to use for your Quilt Scrapbook page and click on it ONE (1) time to open it:



















7) When the background paper image shows up, if it is larger than your paper, you need to
put your mouse on it and right-click, then choose FORMAT PICTURE from the
menu:

8) When the format box pops up, choose the SIZE tab:


























9) Next, you want to make sure the LOCK ASPECT RATIO is UNchecked.

10) Finally, in the HEIGHT space, put 11 and in the WIDTH space put 8.5 (NOTE: 8.5 is 8 1/2” in this instance).
Then click OK. Your paper should now be the correct size for a regular letter-sized paper.

11) You may need to move your background image around so that it is in line with the MSPub background paper.


12) At this point, your page should look
like this, in MSPub:

13) Next, go back to your INSERT and choose the rest of the digital elements that you are considering using in your
digital Quilt Scrapbook page design. I like to have all of the potential elements and photographs right in front of
me when I begin designing a Quilt Scrapbook page. Open all that you may want to use (you can always discard
those that don’t work with what you’re doing at a later time).
14) To add text to your page, click on the TEXT BOX
icon on your menu bar, or choose INSERT > TEXT
BOX from the menu. You can change the size of the
box with your mouse, and you can edit the font and
size of the text from your menu bar.

15) Start playing around with placements!



A few tricks and tips:
• Save, save save. Take the time, once you have your
background paper chosen and formatted, to SAVE
your MSPub document to your computer or a disk.
And be sure to SAVE it when you’re finished, too!
• A number of digital scrapbook elements are in .png
format. This is helpful because they usually have a
transparent background. In MSPub, if you want to
add color to a transparent background, just look for your PAINT bucket in your menu bar, choose the color of
background for the image element that you want and click on it.
• If your paper is too bold for the photograph, you can click on the background paper (to highlight it) then right-
click and choose FORMAT PICTURE. Find the PICTURE tab and change the brightness or contrast, as desired.
• Unless you have a photo printer, you probably won’t get your page to print to the edges of your paper.
• To crop (cut) an element or photograph, click on the image (to highlight it) and then choose the
CROP tool from your menu bar.
• You *can* write on the top of an image, like on a pre-
designed quilt tag. Just place your textbox over the image and
type!
• Get creative! There are many other elements built into the
MSPub software, have fun with them and enjoy making your Quilt Scrapbook
pages!
